The farmshare went belly-up.  I'm open to suggestions of affordable ways of adding veggies to my diet.  (But at least I'm on top of adding fruit!)

A pound of spinach fills my backpack and makes a little over a pint of puree when cooked.  I guess I shouldn't be surprised, but I am.

And on the not-even-trying-to-be-healthy side of the diet, we have:  https://sallysbakingaddiction.com/2013/03/23/nutella-swirl-pound-cake/

I do not think it means what you think it means.

Even converting from Celsius is surprisingly pesky!

Everything frays and falls apart, the center cannot hold. Too hosed with everything, and don't know what to give up, but lets see what I've done:

Monday the 19th: Seafall! Raided Killbot, for my first pc-pc raid of the game. Still feels like it's stalled.
Tuesday the 20th: Auria! The second half of harrock's coup.
Wednesday the 21st: Dunno. Possibly nothing.
Thursday the 22nd: Sophisticate came over for a massage.
Friday the 23rd-Sunday the 25th: That was the weekend of "everyone is gone", so I don't think there was a lot, but I don't remember details anymore. Work on Saturday, Brunch with housemates on Sunday, I think.
Monday the 26th: Torino canceled, so nothing, I think?
27th: Auria! Puttering around investigating what colors mean for "detect evil" results, and looking at our neighbors to the east.
28th: The LARP Teacher came over for a massage.
29th: Went out with brilit. Plan was to go to The Melting Pot, but apparently you can only get in with reservations, so we wound up at a Border Cafe out in the 'burbs (who knew they were a chain! And it was super chain-y, while still also being clearly a Border Cafe!). Then played The Captain Is Dead.
30th: Wonder Woman with ilhander. I quite liked it. They got Diana mostly right (not necessarily exactly how I think of her, but a good version of Warrior Princess Hero), as opposed to trying to make all DC heros Grim'n'Gritty Batman, which I think has been there problem for several movies now.
1st: Dragon Chapter End, the rescue of Tsai Suyin. Then party at Killbot's.
2nd: Civ VI and dinner at Tedlandia, then work, I think.
3rd: Some work, early Seafall 'cause we were officially closed, BBQ at Germany's.
4th: Work work work, then Fireworks! With germany, with guest appearances by fireworksboi and the tibbettses & sniffens.
5th: I think that was mostly a down day?
6th: Warhammer RPG - talking to the underworld, and run in with some Skavin.
7th: Rome GM meeting - long live the eternal city!
8th: Work until Late.
9th: Went to Brunch at S&S and Oasis spa with Killbot, then work for a while.

Running update

I still hate running.

That being said, I don't hate myself while doing it, which is a large improvement.

I'm on week four of c25k, which is 3 minutes run, rest, 5 minute run. I started this week being not sure if I should repeat week 3 again, or try week 4. I'm glad I tried week 4, since I was barely able to do it. The problem, however, is that from this point on in the program the runs start being 20-21 minutes and I'm getting a distance of ~1.6 miles while doing it. Since my goal is not a 5k, but rather 1.5 in 18, I decided today to do a variation. My original plan was 6m run 90s rest 6m run, 90m rest 3m run. But while I was out I changed it to 6m, 90s, 4.5m, 90s 4.5m. I couldn't make the last 4.5m run so it ended up being 4m, 30s, 1.5+ enough to finish the 1.5 miles.

Doing this I got 12:01 mile, which is a good first goal towards the 1.5 in 18. I finished the 1.5 in 18:32 with an average pace of 12:21, which is a huge improvement. I think this is the most important thing. I'm finally seeing progress and things don't seem so hopeless. I'm still a long way off from being able to do the time and do it every time, but at least I no longer feel I'm sliding backwards.

I plan on doing week 4 a few more times, and doing my modified program until I can do it completely. Then I will think about what to do next.
